Coding Style

@markbahnman recently re-wrote the entire script (for which I am eternally grateful) using jQuery and the Javascript module pattern. He wrote a fantastic blog post describing this process, which is also a great reference for those wanting more information about the project's structure.

Otherwise, sane js coding practices apply and should be able to be determined from the existing code.

Browser Extension Compilation

To compile the browser extensions yourself, run the script in the projects root directory (which currently only works on OS X).

    4. Install the Add-on SDK
    5. Navigate to the firefox folder with the addon-sdk enabled
    6. Run cfx xpi
    7. Install the extension with the resulting .xpi file
